Highlights of Syfy 2011 Fall Programming (All Times ET/PT)

SEPTEMBER

PARANORMAL WITNESS (NEW ORIGINAL SERIES)

Wednesday, September 7 at 10PM - Paranormal Witness teams with 9PM lead-in Ghost Hunters to anchor the fall's Wednesday prime paranormal programming block. This tense, filmic and high-octane drama-documentary series brings to life the real stories of people who have lived through paranormal experiences that defy explanation. Using a mixture of intimate first-hand testimony, actual home video and gritty realistic drama, Paranormal Witness transports viewers into a world turned upside-down by extraordinary, terrifying and sometimes life-threatening paranormal events. The season premiere episode showcases two stories with spine-tingling, first-person narration. The episode begins with "Emily the Imaginary Friend," a story about a young Baltimore family whose life is turned to chaos when they move into a new home and their 5-year-old daughter makes friends with an invisible girl named Emily. At first, Emily appears as a harmless playmate. Then, signs of mischievous behavior and household items moving or breaking start to occur in the house. The parents initially assume this could be uncharacteristically naughty behavior from their daughter, until the mischief turns increasingly more sinister and threatening towards the family members. The second story is "The Lost Girl," where a mother and daughter relive an unexplainable encounter along a rural dirt road in Florida with a mysterious girl who carries a shocking secret.
